Terri Cooper is the founder of Yoga Gangsters, a teacher, writer, activist and movement builder for social change. In 2003, she began volunteering as a yoga teacher in some of Miami’s marginalized communities. The work and connection was so compelling that she constantly felt drawn to do more. In 2008, she expanded her service into a community outreach program and began to train other yoga teachers to serve in this way. In just a few short years, Yoga Gangsters has touched the lives of more than 3000 people (mostly youth in crisis), has more than 700 trained volunteers, and has raised more than $220,000 through grassroots community events.
